How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?
Ultrasound Cavitation destroys intractable fat cells by using low frequency sound waves.The sound waves destroy the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs. Clients see results after the first two hour Ultrasound Cavitation and RF Therapy. Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.
Ultrasound Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such a quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated. Ultrasound Cavitation therapy makes it possible to apply concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy to specific treatment areas. This type of therapy targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membranes through a series of microscopic implosions.
Once the fat cell membrane (adipose tissue) is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while water-soluble glycerol is transported to the circulatory system and used as energy.
TRIPOLAR / Radio Frequency or RF
Tripolar RF metabolizes the large fat granules that were exploded by the first cavitation treatment. Heat forces collagen fibers to contract in the subcutaneous and dermis layers, which immediately tighten. New collagen is produced as Fibroblast metabolism is increased, creating a long term result of smoother and firmer skin.
Since RF energy affects the deeper dermal layers, the result is a lifted contour, a decrease in deep wrinkles, thicker and firmer skin. RF promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin.
Lipolysis (mono-polar Radio Frequency combined with cavitation), causes the remaining adipose tissue (fat cell membrane) to explode and forces the removal of triglycerides as well as a tightening of the skin.
The sub-dermis, where cellulite is found, is heated by the ultra power mono-polar radio frequency waves which cause a tightening and slimming appearance on cellulite tissues. Specifically, these currents:
- Instantly shortens original collagen fibers, resulting in the appearance of lifted and tightened skin.
- New collagen and elastin fibers are produced increasing a tightening of skin.
- Fragile cells called adipocytes are stimulated to release fat into the bloodstream removing them.

Immediate and long-lasting results of cavitation therapy
After the first treatment, clients experience a reduction of several cm in circumference and added results after the next visit and longer. Age, metabolism, changes in hormones, medications, tissue structure and treatment area will have an impact on the results. To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
DID THE TREATMENT HURT?
Most clients found the treatment to be very comfortable and trouble-free. Some clients experience warmth during the treatment and a small amount of noise discomfort, but there is no pain.
Specific guidelines for before and after the treatment
It is important to follow a low calorie and healthy diet and to drink 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is key component to eliminate the fat.
Results of Ultrasonic Cavitation vs. Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?
The results of the Ultrasonic Cavitation are very similar to those of Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck as it safely (no damage to the vascular system) removes and prevents recurring cellulite in the treated areas.
Ultrasonic Cavitation creates lipolysis of fatty acids from the fat cell membrane or adipocytes by the process of stable cavitation. Ultrasonic Cavitation increases cell penetration of the adipocytes. There is an increase in triglyceride flow and a destruction of the fibres. Since the liver metabolises a part of the adipocytes and expels it in the urine, it is necessary to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment.
How many sessions are usually needed?
While you will see immediate results in the first session, it is necessary to have between 8 and 12 sessions for optimum results.
